Exhibition Preview: Ho Tzu Nyen // Rae-Yen Song
Join us on Thursday 23 January 2020 (6 – 8pm) for the preview of two new exhibitions at the Centre for Chinese Contemporary Art: Ho Tzu Nyen – The Critical Dictionary of Southeast Asia Volume 10: N for Nameless and Rae-Yen Song – *May-May Songuu*.
CFCCA are proud to present Ho Tzu Nyen’s first UK solo show, The Critical Dictionary of Southeast Asia, including two further works from the encyclopaedic series: The Name (2015) and The Nameless (2014). Recently recognised by ArtReview as one of the top 100 most influential people in the contemporary art world, Ho Tzu Nyen uses historical texts and artifacts to create unique films, video pieces, installations and theatre works that have been shown worldwide from Guggenheim, New York, to the Venice Biennale.
*May-May Songuu* is an exhibition by Rae-Yen Song which explores the construction of personal identity through relationships – familial, communal and divine – which revolve around appetite, and the sharing and offering of food. Consisting of costumes, sculptural objects, growing specimens, animation and large-scale drawings, the exhibition will tell a mythical story about the origins of appetite, seen through the prism of sisterly love.
Both exhibitions will run from 24 January 2020 – 12 April 2020, and are part of our 2020 Diaspora season.
This event is FREE.
